Was actually considering an ADF though I need to do some research before I get too attached to the idea.
How big do the RCS get? I know the one pet store may have them...though I don't think we have any at work, but I may be able to ask them to order some.
And yes! With this tank I hope I am really going to be able to get some live plants going since it has a few more lights and I was able to place it by a window with a good source of light which should really help the growth. My live plants aren't doing so hot in my other tank..likely because there is not a large amount of light, but enough to sustain some slow growth, and the marimo ball is doing fine and dandy. will need to get another for this tank.
But anyways yes, this tank is going to be more live with some silk to supplement.
Awesome is a good way to describe them, there red backs are really awesome
And now for the first pics! I got the preliminary set up started, everything has been rinsed and put together, and sand has been put in.
Now am just waiting for the sand to settle, I am assuming that after a while the stuff on top will settle to the bottom and all the air bubbles on the bottom will dissipate? Newbie with the sand, so not sure if there is anything else I should do, I've stirred it up a bit to get some of the air out, but figured now I should play the waiting game.
But once the sand settles I can put some of the rocks in and start the filter, which not sure how much I like it, rather bulky, may have to invest in another marina slim filter down the road.
But that's all for now..figured I'd end this post with a pic of Puck my current Betta
